Worried About Your Heart?

If you are worried about your heart then you need to take action. Often the symptoms that you are experiencing will not be a sign of underlying heart disease and shouldn't be causing you anxiety.

In a few cases, they are and an early diagnosis can be life-saving.

What should I be worried about?

If you have any of the following symptoms then you need to get them checked out as soon as possible:

  • Chest Pains
  • Breathlessness
  • Palpitations or Irregular Heartbeat
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Dizzy Spells
  • Feeling Exhausted
  • Swollen Legs, Feet and Ankles

If you are worried about your cholesterol levels, or want to have them checked out have a look at my cholesterol issues page.

Can anyone book a telephone consultation?

Yes. You don't need anyone's permission to book a consultation with me. If you have concerns about your health you can book a consultation at a time that best suits you using my online booking system. You don't need a GP referral and you don't have to wait.

What's does a telephone consultation involve?

I can cover most of the things that you would normally expect to happen in a physical, face to face consultation.

I will take a detailed history and go over the symptoms and health issues that you have. If further tests are required I can advise you what is required and in some cases arrange those for you. I will address your concerns with a professional medical assessment of your condition.

I can give you advice about medications and issue prescriptions if required.

How much does an telephone consultation cost?

A general cardiology telephone consultation costs £95. You can pay this when you book your appointment online. You can change the appointment details up to 24 hours beforehand. Additional tests may be required and there are full details here on my 'Fees and Treatment Prices' page.

What happens after I book my appointment?

You will immediately receive a booking confirmation confirming the day and time for your telephone consultation. My practice manager will confirm your appointment details by email during office hours.

Please remember to have your contact telephone/mobile with you at all times 15 minutes before your appointment time as we tend to run on schedule!

I will attempt to call you three times. If there is a problem don't worry my practice team will keep trying and can rearrange the appointment as necessary.

What happens after my telephone consultation?

If further tests or treatments are required you have two options. I can book these for you privately or if you would prefer a referral back into the appropriate NHS waiting list I can advise how you can go about it, and in some cases makes the referral for you. I'll discuss both options with you thoroughly before we finish though so you will know exactly what is going to happen next.

If I book a private consultation does that mean I have to pay for any future tests & treatments as well?

No, you can switch back to NHS treatment and, if I can, I will make the referral onto the relevant waiting list for you.

After treatment, you also have the option to re-book with me privately whenever you want.
